I still have a place in my heart for Sindy. But my first grown up dolly purchase was Christmas 2011, well not mine exactly, the Mister bought me Barbie's Joanie from Mad Men.
Isn't she just perfection?
With that 1960s eye liner flick up.
Christmas just gone was one of the two Elizabeth Taylor commemorative dolls issued recently by Mattel. The dolls were reviewed and approved by the icon herself, I think Mattel have done a grand job.
Now they are all having a lovely time in my art deco blond oak cabinet with 'engagement' Kate Middleton.
I keep thinking to myself they are a good investment for the future, and they are, but actually I just really like looking at them.
This week oh dear, I have made another discovery - Roldan dolls. Fi posted a great piece about them on her blog, she collects dolls too, so it's not an ole lady thing or anything huh? Nip over and take a squiz they're absolutely adorable.
I was straight onto ebay obvs, bad move, so many pretties.
